A User's Guide to Oral Care Products
One easy way to improve your mouth health and preserve your teeth longer is to use the right equipment regularly.

We recommend that you add flossing to your dental care routine. If your teeth are tightly spaced, shop around for a floss that will slip more easily between your teeth, such as waxed ribbon, tape floss or Glide. If you find it difficult to handle floss, try a floss holder.

Soft-bristled toothbrushes bend and flex to reach more surfaces but be sure to get one that is comfortable to hold and works well in your mouth. A small brush head will reach back teeth more easily. Don't struggle with one that has bent or frayed bristles that can't be directed accurately. The American Dental Association recommends replacing your toothbrush every three to four months because it becomes less effective at plaque removal and bristles can harbor bacteria and other microorganisms.

For people with limited motor skills or arthritis, a powered toothbrush might be helpful.

If your toothbrush has a rubber tip, use it to massage your gums after brushing. Additional tools include tiny brushes that get in between the teeth, called interproximal toothbrushes, and small interdental picks. Be careful to avoid injuring the gums when using these devices.

Oral irrigators can help remove particles of food around the teeth, especially if you wear braces or fixed partial dentures. But they are not a substitute for brushing and flossing as they lack the mechanical scrubbing action that toothbrushes and floss provide.

Mouth rinses with fluoride can help prevent tooth decay. Using an antiplaque or antigingivitis mouth rinse such as Chlorhexidine may be recommended if you have plaque or gum disease.

Check with us if you are not clear on the proper use of any of these products.
